This is a commissioned piece for a friend at work.
A week ago, I was asked if I could make a lighthouse-shaped cutting board. I had to think a little bit in order to come up with what you see here, but the pattern finally emerged and was approved.
I usually don’t make edge-grained boards, but in this case I think it made sense.
I used various strips of 1 1/8” Cherry for the body of the lighthouse and a solid piece of walnut for the cap.
Overall dimensions are 18” tall, 12” wide at the base and a tad over 3/4” thick.
I used a mineral oil and beeswax finish to give it a bunch of protection and a little shine.
